Filed Under (Dyeing, Other fibre/textile crafts, Weaving) by jennyk on 15-12-2004

It’s been a while, but I can finally post pics of some of the things I’ve been doing this autumn. though others haven’t reached their recipients yet. I wove some bookmarks for an exchange, as I had a warp I needed to use up:



The warp and weft were 12/2 white mercerised cotton. I used fibre reactive dyes to dye the finished bookmarks. The dyeing wasn’t completely successful as too much of the dye washed out, changing the colours, so after those, I wove a few for Christmas presents using lilac 12/2 weft.

I went back to bobbin lace after a long break to make the rest of my exchange bookmarks, and I have really enjoyed that. I have done 3 so far, with one more to do, but I’ll make a couple more for presents.

Those are absolutely lovely. I really like the blue one in particular with its tracery of yello through it.

Jenny I love the bookmark the picture on your blog does not do it justice.

Mine! All mine! muhahaha.

Seriously, I would like to attain such heights of bobbin lace beauty myself one day.
